Publisher's Summary

Fat isn't the problem. Dieting is the problem. A society that rejects anyone whose body shape or size doesn't match an impossible ideal is the problem. A medical establishment that equates "thin" with "healthy" is the problem.

The solution? The Health at Every Size program. Tune in to your body's expert guidance. Find the joy in movement. Eat what you want, when you want, choosing pleasurable foods that help you to feel good. You too can feel great in your body right now - and this book will show you how.

Health at Every Size has been scientifically proven to boost health and self-esteem. The program was evaluated in a government-funded academic study, its data published in well-respected scientific journals.

Updated with the latest scientific research and even more powerful messages, Health at Every Size is not a diet book, and after finishing it, you will be convinced the best way to win the war against fat is to give up the fight.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "I'm a new person."

    I'll never see my weight the same way again. I let this book sit on the Shelf for over a year. I sure wish I had not done that. I will honestly never be the same. I can now leave the shackles of diet behind and start treating my body with respect. Eating more vegetables and fruits exercising more and throwing that damn scale out the f****** window. I've wasted too much time . I plan to actually live the rest of my life. This was a great 40th birthday gift.

    "Lots of good information but poorly organized"

    I felt like the book jumped topics a lot or would repeat statements but so much good information that i don't want to discourage people from reading it

    "Perfect!"

    I enjoyed that everything she mentioned in her book that was "unconventional" was backed up by science!!! Weight does not measure health!!

    "Eye-opening, mind-expanding!"

    Listen to the whole thing. Refrain from judgement until you hear the entire concept. I have been blaming myself all these years. I’m having to retrain my thought patterns.

    "A MUST read for anyone who eats!"

    This book has validated everything I believed to be true about my body and how I eat. I have been practicing intuitive eating for some time now while fighting with cultural stigma.
    Thank you for doing the research and making this knowledge available. Thank you for writing this book.

    "Great book for overall concepts"

    This was a great book for overall concept, but her ideas on nutrition seemed a little ortho wreck dick to me. She vilified fat and someone who was vulnerable to food rules may react negatively to that. Her ideas about Bosie body positivity are great, and communicated well.

    "Every woman should read this book"

    The idea that weight causes a whole host of health related problems is so engrained in our belief as a society that it's almost unimaginable to believe it may not actually be true at all. Linda Bacon provides a compelling argument for us all to embrace the Health at Every Size movement and start loving our bodies as they are rather than fight against them day in and day out. Once we give up the fight we might find that we settle into a far more comfortable place both physically and mentally. This really is a must read if we want to start changing our culture's perception of body weight and health.
